Phillies - DFAed Awfulman

Philadelphia Phillies - Designated IF Jose Offerman for assignment.

Hey, it’s Dave Stapleton without the 1B defense!  Supposedly this means that Ryan Howard will stay on the roster or the Phils will find another actual major leaguer to take Jose’s spot, increasing the roster from 24 to 25 men.  Yes, Offerman was once unfairly maligned but since his legs went, he’s not.

Yay!

I was positive O-fer-man's homer yesterday would save his job for at least a couple of weeks. Nice to be wrong in this case.

I seriously cannot imagine what this guy was doing with a job. I couldn't figure it last year when he was on the Twins. One year removed from that rousing campaign, I was even more perplexed. I'd rather see an Andy Fox or something.

Man, Dusty gotta be kicking himself. Enrique Wilson is fine, but the Cubs could have had Jose Offerman! Maybe if they moved Dubois, then they could pickup Offerman to take Macias' spot on the bench (Macias, of course, would be the new starting LFer).

So... we'd have Perez at SS, Wilson at 2B, and Macias in LF. Now that's an offense that could take on the Astros!

That's an offense that could take on Katie Brownell and the Dodgers of the Oakfield-Alabama Little League.

You haven't seen him stick his head in front of the first baseman's glove. It's an intangible that statheads just don't appreciate.

I saw it mentioned somewhere:
What do Ted Williams and J-Off have in common?

They both hit home runs in their last at bats.

So, how many players besides Offerman have homered in both their first and last career at-bat?

Are there any players who had only 1 AB and homered?
